Since 2013, it was announced that 2Pac will have his very own biopic “All Eyez On Me.” After interchanging directors and finding the perfect fit to portray the characters, Jamal “Gravy” Woolard has finally confirmed his role as the actor who will get to play 2Pac’s nemesis in the movie, Notorious B.I.G. The 2Pac biopic is finally on the rise!
Director of “2 Fast 2 Furious” and “Boyz N The Hood,” John Singleton backed out on being the one to create the much-anticipated 2Pac biopic, “All Eyez On Me.” It has been two years since the production company confirmed that they would be making such film but developments have not been as fast as anticipated; the cast and crew could not seem to be completed.
However, The Stashed reported that the cast and production have finally found improvements when Jamal Woolard was confirmed for the character Notorious B.I.G., the rapper who 2Pac had been with for many years during his career. In fact, Woolard had been on the top of the list during the casting process. The production company Morgan Creek and director Benny Boom found him as the perfect fit for the role.
The filmmaking process started earlier this month in Atlantis where the production company and director took some notes from the recently successful biopic, “Straight Outta Compton.” Since “All Eyez On Me” and the former share the same story, Boom found the movie the perfect reference to make “All Eyez On Me” as successful as the latter.
In other news, XXL Magazine reported that Demetrius Shipp Jr., the actor who gets to play 2Pac in the biopic, posted a photo of him and Gravy, another name that labeled Woolard, on his Instagram account. The only response that Woolard commented was, “2Pac movie get ready historical moments.”
Now that 2Pac will finally get his own biopic entitled, “All Eyez On Me,” will Demetrius Shipp, Jr. and Jamal Woolard be able to do justice to their roles as 2pac and Notorious B.I.G.?
